What’s On the Sámi Inspired Projects Workbench

What’s On the Sámi Inspired Projects Workbench

August is here and we’re moving into the “dog days” of summer. It’s been pretty hot here in Southeastern Minnesota so I’ve been working on several new projects in my sweet air conditioned studio!

I’m always developing new ideas for different kits so here are a few new upcoming design offerings I’m working out. I prefer Sámi inspired traditional leather dyes but I’ve been experimenting with brighter colors (you’ll notice the Prince inspired bracelet!) and more creative bracelet borders.

Celtic and Posament Style Braids for Bracelets

I love necklaces so I created this Egyptian style multi-color collar style using thin strips of reindeer leather and pewter thread.

We’re also in preproduction mode for several new videos demonstrating more intricate braiding, beading and sewing techniques so stay tuned for those to drop in early September.

I mentioned in my previous blog we are already booking class dates beginning in January 2020. There are still opportunities to take a class before the end of the year so check our remaining calendar dates and start gearing up for Xmas!

Great students having a great time in our studio!

 If you prefer to learn with your gal pals or fellow creatives, we can schedule a class date for your group in our beautiful Lanesboro, MN studio. Call us at 507-467-3078 for details.

Working on some cool projects of your own? Post your pictures on our Saami Inspired Facebook Page and email me your images for a potential feature spot in one of our upcoming blogs! I’d love to see what you’re working on.

In the meantime stay cool and keep creating!
